My girlfriend lives in North Beach and we have definitely ventured out to test the waters in terms of italian restaurants, but it wasn't until we found Vicoletto where we truly experienced some of the best food in the whole area. Nestled on Green St. next to other bars and restaurants, this restaurant is a hidden gem in an area with too many mediocre ""touristy"" italian restaurants. The menu AND wine list is all reasonably priced and certainly affordable.
We got the tortellini with prociutto, which was one of the best tasting dishes I've had. Everything was homemade and authentic. They even brought us a free appetizer of goat cheese with some sort of eggplant/pepper salsa that was very good.
The service was extremely friendly and offered up great suggestions. I highly recommend Vicoletto for dates and other casual dining you might partake in. It is above and beyond better than 95% of the italian restaurants in the area.
